Preparation of the recipe:

Set oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

Cook the pasta until just al dente (do not overcook); drain, do not rinse and immediately toss with 1-2 Tbsp oil to prevent sticking; set aside.

In a large fry pan, sauté the sausage, ground beef, onion, garlic, dried oregano and thyme, over med-high heat, until the sausage and the ground beef are brown, crumbling with a fork while cooking (about 6-7 minutes).

Add in the undrained tomatoes, tomato paste and the cayenne pepper; simmer for 5-6 minutes (breaking up tomatoes with the back of a spoon).

Add in the kidney beans, and heat through.

Season with salt and pepper.

Add in the cooked pasta, Parmesan cheese and parsley; toss to combine.

Transfer the mixture to a prepared baking dish.

Top with grated cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until cheese melts and the mixture is hot and bubbly.
